Wolves vs Walsall by Neuro
Wolves finally started playing good football, getting their fourth consecutive victory last weekend when they defeated Port Vale 3:1 away from home. First halftime was pretty boring, while Wolves stepped up in the second half and showed their clear superiority with three goals from 55th to 83rd minute with goals from Griffiths, Sigurdarson and McDonald.
All the hosts were able to do is to reply and reduce the deficit in the injury time. As said, it was fourth consecutive victory for the Wolves, who now have a 4-1-0 record in the League One, while their primary and only target remains getting the direct promotion to Championship after they suffered two consecutive relegations (from Premier League two seasons before and from Championship last season). Atmosphere in the club is improved a lot as everyone now believes promotion is reality for them, while the coach won't ignore the Cup competition and will also try to get as further as possible.
There will be some changes in the home side as left back Golbourne (4/0) is doubtful, while the team will miss four players that are on international duties in next seven days: strikers Griffiths (4/3) and Cassidy (2/0), midfielder Evans (4/1) and right back Ricketts (4/0).
Walsall, on the other hand, is coming from their worst performance this season, as they were defeated by Preston 0:3 at home. With this defeat, Walsall now counts four matches without victory having quite sluggish start this season. They remains behind in the scoreline in 30th minute with a direct free kick goal, while the visitors scored two more in 58th and 61st minute getting fairly deserved victory.
On the other side, Walsall was unable to reply with anything positive in next thirty minutes of the match. Coach Smith wasn't satisfied after the game, saying that he is responsible for the defeat too, as he could opt for some more experienced players for the game saying that the game against Stoke few days earlier cost them a lot when speaking about their fitness. Coach Smith has also said that the team will see some rotate for tonight's game, but has kept his cards closed on this one. The team itself has no fresh injury or suspension worries.
Wolverhampton have found their right form and it's hard to see them not winning this one, even though they will miss few important players. Visitors will mix the squad too and therefore, victory of home side that has much better psychology at the moment and richer roster shouldn't be questionable tonight.
